Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

What Are The Causes Of CRPS?

CRPS has been documented as a medical condition for more than a century, although the precise cause of it is yet to be identified. However, the condition usually develops a brief period following an injury, such as:

  • Burns
  • Fractures
  • Cuts
  • Sprains and strains

 

 

Even though these injuries are quite common and many people recover without any complications, those suffering from CRPS tend to experience prolonged and severe pain than usual.

Do You Need a Pain Doctor?

The symptoms of CRPS include:

  • Intense pain
  • Constant swelling
  • Stinging sensations
  • Flare-ups that constantly rock the affected limb

All these seem to amplify even with the slightest touch or changes in temperature. In addition to the chronic pain, you may begin to experience muscle spasms, tremors, joint stiffness, and you may even find it difficult to move the affected limb. In severe cases, CRPS can affect physical complications, including muscle atrophy, contractures, and even ulcers.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS): Causes and Symptoms

If you’re experiencing persistent yet severe pain in any part of your body, you need to take caution because you might be suffering from CRPS; a painful debilitating condition that’s usually triggered by an injury.

  • Burns
  • Cuts
  • Sprains
  • Strains

Basically, it’s an anomalous response to injury, causing the malfunction of the body’s system, including the central nervous system, the peripheral nervous system, the immune system, and the blood vessels. In worse cases, the pain can spread from the affected limb to other parts of the body; for instance, an injury to your finger can cause the whole arm to ache severely and for a prolonged period than normal.

Even though CRPS is not life-threatening, it can present myriad challenges and make your life quite unbearable, especially because of the pain that’s usually continuous, severe and extremely enervating. If affected, know that you are not alone in this, since statistics show 1 in about 4000 people suffers from CRPS each year.
